Processed bed elevation picks from airborne radar depth sounding across East and West Antarctica (1966-1987)
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01357

Summary

Abstract:
This is a collection of all vintage BAS radar data that went into BEDMAP 1 (Lythe and Vaughan, 2001) that have not been released so far as line data. BEDMAP data descries the thickness of the Antarctic ice sheet. They have been collected on surveys undertaken over the past 50 years and brought together into a single database. These data have allowed the compilation of a suite of seamless digital topographic models for the Antarctic continent and surrounding ocean.

Data are provided as XYZ ASCII line data.
